britain's corridors of power. brooks is answering police questions. >> reporter: in the cozy world of british politics and media, rebecca brooks was at its very center. she wined and dined the rich and powerful on behalf of her boss and mentor, rupert murdoch. brooks first came to news international as a secretary at "news of the world." she quickly developed a reputation for her tenacity as a journalist, reportedly once disguising herself as a cleaning lady to scoop a competitor. described as both ruthless and charming, she was soon the youngest editor of the "news of the world," and shortly after "the sun," both named by murdoch's news international. she spearheaded a controversial campaign to, quote, name and shame alleged pedophiles, publishing their names and addresses in the paper. as the editor of "the sun," brooks testified to parliament that her paper had paid police officers for information. and it was under her editorship that the "news of the world" allegedly paid a private investigator to hack into the voicemail messages of millie doweller, the 13-year-old girl murdere
phone hacking scandal in britain has claimed its first public official. just hours ago, britain's top cop suddenly resigned. his resignation comes on the same day police arrested a top murdoch executive. let's bring in cnn's atika shubert. atika, is there a connection between the resignation and the arrest of that top murdoch executive? >> well, there are basically two different strands of the same scandal. in the place of sir paul stevenson, the topmost senior police officer here in britain, he basically resigned because of increasing intense scrutiny over the relationship between the metropolitan police and "news of the world." that tabloid that was shut down because of those phone hacking allegations. and basically there was a former "news of the world" editor, neil wallace, who it turns out was paid by the metropolitan police to be a communications consultant. sir paul stevenson was taking a lot of flak for that. now, he resigned saying he feels he's done nothing wrong, his integrity is intact, he says. however, he does feel that these allegations are distracting from the metropol
it was a suicide. this scandal is rocking britain but seems ready to explode here in the united states. the fbi investigating whether a news corp journalist tried to hack into the phones of 9/11 victims and survivors. the fbi also says it's aware of reports that actor jude law's phone was hacked while he was in new york. the scandal shows no sign of slowing down. quite acontrary. possibly being replaced as the ceo of his own media empire. a man whose customer base is the whole world. anyone who watches ""glee"" or reads the "wall street journal" or anyone that goes to the movies or reads books. we have jeffrey toobin and matthew chance. brian, we'll start with you, rupert murdoch stepping down in the world of media, that's a wow. true or maybe? >> right now it's a maybe. news corp will not deny the bloomberg report on the record. what they say on background, people around the company say there was no meeting today to talk about it. you can tell that's not a real denial. they may want this out here before the testimony in order to change the tone of the testimony. clearly it's going to be a toug
to address members of parliament in britain tomorrow, how serious is this moment for him and his company? >> it's dreadfully serious for rupert murdoch, his family and his company. the company itself i don't think is in jeopardy. it's the second or third largest media company in the world, but murdoch's aura of invincibility is gone. his lieutenants are apples falling from the tree. his argument it was a few rotten apples is discredited. it's really a barrel problem. he has to deal with that, and he knows in coming days, not just in his testimony tomorrow, but in coming days, there will be more apples that will be revealed to have been rotten. he has a lot to answer for. >> i can say from my experience, editing a newspaper for him and this was, five, six years before any of this phone hacking began, but certainly when i worked for him, he wanted his editors to be tough, ruthless, aggressive, all of the things would you expect from a tabloid newspaper, but always to operate within the law. and i find it impossible, personally knowing the man, to think he would have known about law breakin
of britain, outraged by the betrayal of trust by parts of our newspaper industry, who have spoken out up and down this country, who have contacted members across this house and told us of their concerns. the will of parliament was clear. the will of the public was clear. and now, britain's most powerful media owner has had to bend to that will. this debate is an opportunity to understand how we got here and where we go from here. i will speak briefly to allow others to speak in what has been curtailed debate. the terrible revelations of the last week have shaken us all. they have caused immense pain and heartache to reap families, as they learned their most private moments were stolen from them to sell newspapers. as each day has gone by, i am sure all of us will have felt the same. surely it cannot get any worse than this. but it has. the bone of milly dowler -- phone of milly dowler, the victims of 7/7, the families of our war dead, and the personal details of our former prime minister. and we are told there is worse to come. these revelations have uncovered a pattern of sustained crim
for parliament and for the people of britain that we represent. this is the most humble day of my kroor and all that has happened i know that we needed to be here today. james and i would like to say how sorry we are for what has happened. especially with regard to listen toing the the voice mail of victims of crime. my company has 52,000 employees. i have led it for 57 years. and i have made my share of mistakes. i have lived in many countries, employed hundreds of honest and hard working journalists. i own nearly 200 newspapers and followed countless stories about people and families around the world. at no time do i remember being as sickened as when i heard what the dowda family had to endure. which i think was last monday week. nor do i recall being as angry as when i was told that the news of the world could have compounded their distress. i want to thank the family for graciously giving me the opportunity a apologize in person. i would like all the victims of phone hacking to know how completely and deeply sorry i am apologizing cannot take back what has happened. still, i want them to k
irony that in the contrast between the sort of thing his newspapers have done in britain and what his politics is, the fox news cable channel here. we should at this point stressed that there is no evidence of any sort of misconduct by any of his american news outlets, be it fox or "the journal" or "the new york post." host: what is his reputation in the uk? guest: his reputation is it one of the most powerful people in the country. he owned almost 34% of the national media market. bskyb, which he on a share -- they blocked a controlling share -- is the big pay-tv service. he has been a huge figure in our public life for the past 20, 30 years, which is why so many of his opponents are so pleased that his reputation has not taken such a beating -- has now taken such a beating. host: next call for alex spillius comes from woodstock, illinois. caller: i picked up "the economist" magazine the other day, an excellent edition. on page 12, they go into their editorial basically, and it is based out of london. it says "if it is proven that news corp. managers conducted lawbreaking, they shoul
it at 2.5% of the cost. this is a good investment for britain, for british taxpayers to make sure we reduce inequality in our world. >> can the prime minister explain whether he thinks that the cost of his nhs reforms set to rise even further we now know with the revelation that a new super quango is going to be created. it might be partly responsible putting at risk services at the popular school in my constituency? >> what we've actually seen since this government has taken office is more than 2,000 more doctors but 4,000 fewer managers. and we are cutting bureaucracy by a third. i know they don't like to hear it. but if we'd followed their plans and cut nhs spending, you'd see the number of doctors, the number of nurses, the number of operations going down. and just this morning, we see the figures for the number of diagnostic tests in the u.k. going up. that's because of the investment going in under this government. >> thank you, mr. speaker. will the prime minister be aware of the news this morning that portugal's debt has been downgraded to junk status. does he not agreed that
in arizona. hello. caller: i can see this going on in great britain, i guess the police are involved. but then they are doing it for us in the same manner. scanning e-mails, looking for certain words and what ever. i do not see any difference. i mean, they are exchanging information, but the fact that the government is concerned in one place and not the other is somewhat humorous or dreadful, depending on your point of view. host: thank you for calling the idea this morning. a bit more from the can paulson editorial this morning. every news organization host: next call on the british phone hacking scandal and its impact comes from denver. hello. caller: i'd think it has been going on for a long time in america. the sponsors, rep john de gaulle, michigan, and republicans worked together with the chamber of commerce to defeat it in 1997. him and reagan had health plans to take $1,900,000 in total compensation and resigned. his three underlings took almost 1100 million dollars. host: tie this into what we are talking about. caller: i think that this is going on for a long time. where do

in the news scandal in britain. british prime minister david cram ron turned himself in. he was released though. he was editor at the time of the scandal before being hired by cameron. he quit his government job earlier this year. employees of the tabloid newspaper hacked into the voice account of a murdered girl and erased messages. this week owner rupert murdoch shut down the paper. >>> we ask that each of you join the athletics, texas rangers and all of major league baseball, as we observe a silent moment of reflection and respect for brownwood texas firefighter s n shannon stone. >> shannon stone was a firefighter from brownsville, texas, who fell to his death from the stands at a texas rangers baseball game earlier this week. he was trying to catch a ball for his 6-year-old son that was in the stands by one of the rangers players. stone was honored with a moment of silence last night. the rangers set up a memorial fund for his family. so sad. >>> a fan who flu across can country has been indicted. nigerian is being charged with being a stowaway for trying to enter a secure area at

of the biggest selling papers in britain. it has a reputation second to none, really, for uncovering scandals and gossip, and has been at the center of this massive controversy that has exploded with revelations that they had hacked into the voice mail messages of a 13-year-old schoolgirl who was murdered, in 0rd to get salacious stories. that has provoked a huge back lash with an emergency debate in the british parliament. 9 prime minister came out and roundly condemned them. the advertisers were fleeing in droves, and now they have taken the ultimate sanction. >> do we think that's the case of the dead teenager that was the final straw here, because there have been a lot of complaints, and we've even seen recently celebrities coming forward, i believe hugh grand was one of them. was that the case that was brought before them, where they realized they could just not survive? >> i think if that had been on its own, it would have been bad enough, and they may well have taken the decision. that coupled with the news they had allegedly hacked into the voicemail messages of the families of soldie
was always right. and an essential key, as with the idea that because britain and germany were both anglo-saxon races, that they would not go to work with one another. it's an absurdity needless to say until may levels, but basically because he himself had served in the trenches in the great war when they had fought one another. nonetheless, by the time to second world war broke out their only 46 operational u-boats against the united kingdom because he didn't believe he would ever ask have to fight the united kingdom by the end of the war through 463, most of them bottled up in the baltic. but if you start the second world war with as many u-boats as the fish would've been able to have strangled the united kingdom. and when one looks at the plans to invade the united kingdom, many of which were not even a great into september 1940, when really they should have been put in place since he came to power in january 1933. one appreciates how little he was expecting to have to attack. there is the infamous -- the list of 2820 britons who are going to be shot on sight, or at least when they wer

. >> reporter: it was a wild day in britain's emergency session of parliament today. the focus shifted from rupert murdoch to britain's prime minister, david cameron. but the prime minister's case is about poor judgment and nothing to do with any crimes. david cameron defended himself for hiring a former editor of "news of the world" andy callson as his communications chief even though he may have known about the phone hacking. >> i have said very clearly that if it turns out andy coulson knew about the hacking at the "news of the world" he would not only have lied to me, but to the police, to a select committee, to the press complaints commission and perjuried himself in a court of law. >> reporter: cameron was advised against hiring him, did it anyway, and was forced to resign and arrested last week. he said in parliament that cameron was guilty of a gross error in judgment. >> it's not about hindsight, mr. speaker. it's not about whether mr. coulson lied to him. it's about the information and warnings that the prime minister ignored. >> reporter: cameron said if he had to do it over he w
? >> because we saw published reports that suggested what was going on in great britain were the news of the world was actually getting access to the prime minister's records, to the royal family's records, to the young victim after crime and others. actually had been attempted here in the united states answers 9/11 families and the victims of 9/11. and so, to me, that's outrageous, if it's true, and needs to be investigated. that's why i called upon the justice department to conduct an investigation to find out whether that's true. because as we approach the tenth commemoration of september 11th, the last thing that 9/11 families should have to think about is that access to their records were you know, ultimately obtained illegally by an entity like news corp. >> let me ask you about a new twist to this, about the news corp in america and there are reports that quote, i'm going to quote the sorry, news america had illegally accessed plaintiff's computer system and obtained proprietary information and dissem nated false, misleading and malicious information about the plaintiff. the br
the scandal ever closer into the political arena. and think about this, not only has britain lost faith in their journalists, but they've lost faith in politicians and now in the police as well. a point to make is, growing up as a kid in london, you look at scotland yard and stunned by their investigate zeal and incorruptibility, hold on a second, they were taking payments from journalists. >> speaking of fragility, rupert murdoch himself is 80 years old. today he was doddering. much of the question today, somebody tried to pie him in the face, he looked like a mugging victim. how plausible is his claim today he's really not in charge anymore? >> well, i think it's inherently a difficult defense because he might say he can't remember, but that raises questions about his role of chief executive of a prominent, multi-billion dollar business, one of the predatory media companies in the world, so he can defend himself against sort of charges that he knew about criminal activity from british journalists, but that only puts him into deeper water in terms of chief executive and chairman of new

: arriving in britain sunday to manage the crisis directly. the allegations of phone hacking have been rumbling in the background for several years but exploded last week when a rival paper accused "the news of the world" of deleting messages from the phone of a murdered 13-year-old girl while police were hounting for her. victims of the 2005 london tear regard attacks were also victims. the decision to respond by shutting the paper down took most by surprise including the editor of the last edition. >> it's a terrific shame that it's come to this, and as i said to the staff this morning, it's not where we wanted to be and not where we deserve to be. >> reporter: the final edition is a compilation of the paper's triumphs in the unlikely hope that when the scandal eventually dies down, this is what it will be remembered for. inside there is a four-page apology which states quite simply, we lost our way. recognition of a scandal that has dented both the reputation and the share price of mr. murdoch's media empire just as he seeks to expand it here in britain. police are continuing their

britain. the scandal has widened to include charges of tampering and police bribery. murdoch shut down his tabloid "news of the world" in response to the scandal. meanwhile the fbi is looking into allegations that newscorp employees tried to hack into the telephones of 9/11 victims in the united states. >>> seven minutes after the hour now. 68 degrees. casey anthony will be a free casey anthony will be a free woman this weekend. somewhere in america, there's a doctor who can peer into the future. there's a nurse who can access in an instant every patient's past. and because the whole hospital's working together, there's a family who can breathe easy, right now. somewhere in america, we've already answered some of the nation's toughest healthcare questions. and the over 60,000 people of siemens are ready to do it again. siemens. answers. >>> good morning. 67 degrees. sun is up. what a beautiful picture. blue skies, streaky clouds above us. blue sky reflected into the waters of the potomac. what a nice way to start the weekend. >> if your plans don't include spending time outside, change of
